Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. Find a penny. Look at the date and tell us something about your life or what you were doing that year? 

Penny date 2003.  I was teaching ...same school I am currently teaching (part-time) and the same subjects...Math 6, Math7, and Pre-Algebra.  Back in 2003 throw in English 8!  I imagine I  was busy with both daughters, who were both involved in school stuff...the band, sports, scholastic bowl,etc.  Busy but how I miss those days!!!  I was currently living in my favorite house EVER!!  have moved twice since then.

2003 a year that I can't remember any major headlines so it must have been a year without drama.

2. Were you given an allowance as a child? Did you have to earn it in some way? Did you learn to save money when you were a child or is that something you figured out as an adult? 

I was not given an allowance when growing up.  No allowance was given till I was a freshmen in college.  Even though I wasn't given an allowance as a child, there were chores to be done and consequences if the chores weren't completed.
Saving money was something I figured out in college and really mostly as an adult.

3. April 23rd is National Take A Chance Day...what's a chance you need or want to take?

A chance I want to take is taking a trip.  But I don't want to drive 6 hrs by myself.  I am just not comfortable (right now anyway) driving a long distance by myself to a place I am not familiar with at all.  Desperately want to meet up with my friends and there is no way geographically  we can hook up without going hours out of the way.  I have even looked at flights and there appears to be no way.  Wanting to go but hesitant.

4. What's some outdated slang you seem to use a little too often?

Two words came to mind.  First word, split.  Let's split when I was ready to leave.  The second word is bummer.  I still use both of these words. 

5. It's National Poetry month and I always like to make us work our brains a little...

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I am thinking about 
Getting a 3rd tattoo

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I was able to mow the lawn yesterday.  Glad I did because it is cold here and the latest weather report is calling for snow flurries tonight. YIKES!!

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. I hope you can figure a way to meet up with your friends. We ended up with snow this morning and I'm so over it. lol

  2. I think you can do that road trip. I say go for it. You'll be glad you did. You can take your time and you have a phone. Maybe you could arrange some check ins along the way? I hope it works out for you!

  3. You can do the road trip! I agree with Joyce - go for it!!! I don't have any tattoos but both my daughter and daughter-in-law do.

  4. We got the snow last night and this morning--happily sending it on to you.
    I agree! Go for that road trip!

  5. I took a 6-hour one-way road trip a few weeks ago to visit my sisters. You can definitely do it. Get you an audio book to keep you occupied and enjoy the trip. Go for it, please don't deny yourself the enjoyment of being with friends.
